Red color bands in picture

Unfortunately I forgot to rewind my film before opening up the back door on the camera. A couple of pictures got destroyed but hopefully someone can help me fix this.

Re: Red color bands in picture

Wow, you read my mind.

Being new I figured I'd better lurk and research a bit before posting my problem pic. Mine has the same problem as yours only mine has the red in the middle of the photo.

Hopefully someone will help fix yours, and I'll try the same method to fix mine.

Good Luck,
Tim

Re: Red color bands in picture

The red channel is pretty blown away in that strip but there is some detail in the green channel and lots of detail in the blue channel. I applied the blue channel to a copy of the background in Pin Light blend mode then sampled good color and painted over the areas on a new layer set to color blend mode.
There are other ways to do this as well.
Regards, Murray

Scotty, a simple crop using the same ratio as the original seems to work also

Re: Red color bands in picture

To bring back the texture I used blue & green channels with a high pass filter.

@lynn55: Look at this link posted by unimatrix001: http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/?m=show&id=304
That'll help you understand channels & remove color bands (most of the time).

Re: Red color bands in picture

Although you lose some detail, you can remove the red band itself using a hue-saturation adjustment layer:
-- Open a HS layer above your background
-- Select Reds from the drop down box
-- Use the left eyedropper and click on the red band
-- Switch to the + eyedropper and click in multiple areas of the band to expand the color range
-- Move the Saturation slider to the left until the red disappears
-- Move the Lightness slider to the left until you get a tone level that matches the rest of the picture.

You can then add back some color by sampling the rocks and vegetation and adding solid color adjustment layers using those sampled colors and masking the areas that you don't want colorized. Set the blend mode of these layers to color.
